About

Aisling D'ArtThis site is about art and journaling, art and mixed-media art, art and painting, art and mailart, art and ATCs, art and fiber arts, and…

Well, you get the idea.

I’m Aisling D’Art, and this website – at Aisling.net – has been online since the 1990s. (It started at GeoCities’ Soho community.) I’ve written hundreds of articles here, mostly how-to ideas and examples. All of them are about making art, especially art for journals.

For 2020, I decided to reorganize this site and relaunch it with a fresh name. But… I had no idea what to call it.

After two days of trying to find the best name, I was talking with my husband. I said, “I’m trying to find a name for the site that suggests everything artsy I work on. So, it needs to be ‘art and…’ something.”

And then he & I laughed, because that phrase fits this site perfectly.

It’s “art and… something.”

So that’s how you can reach this site – either with the original URL (Aisling.net) or with ArtAndSomething.com.

During January and February, I’ll be updating and streamlining this site, daily. I’ll also be integrating my art-related content from my other sites, like ArtistsJournals.com, so all the articles are in one place.

It’s a new year and a new decade, and I’m kind of excited about this.
